18 Voices: A Liberation Day Reading
|Date||Wed, Jan 27, 7:00pm - 8:00pm|
18 Voices: A Liberation Day Reading of Young Writers’ Diaries From the Holocaust
More than one million Jewish children were killed during the Holocaust and countless others survived. Some, like Anne Frank, kept diaries in which they confided their hopes, fears, and experiences. Join the Museum of Jewish Heritage on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and the 76th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, for a special virtual reading of excerpts from these diaries. The excerpts will be read by actors and public figures including Liev Schreiber, and featuring readings from Skylar Astin, Andréa Burns, Mandy Gonzalez, Daniel Kahn, Adam Kantor, Telly Leung, Stephanie Lynn Mason, Zalmen Mlotek, Amit Rahav, Eleanor Reissa, Yelena Schmulenson, Alexandra Silber, Abby Stein, Danny Strong, and more. The evening's readings are curated by Alexandra Zapruder, the author of Salvaged Pages: Young Writers' Diaries of the Holocaust.
By giving voice to the written words of some of the Nazis’ youngest victims, the Museum of Jewish Heritage will commemorate their suffering and learn from their courageous and resilient spirits.
This event is free with a suggested donation.
